our story

moms bake best

Butter Bakery was once the pipe dream of two busy working Moms, now our dreams are a reality and we get to experience the joy of spreading happiness one baked good at a time. We bring professional experience with Italian flare and home-made bakes laced with British tradition – all wrapped up in American ingredients to create a unique baking experience where every bite will make you smile.

Emily Melnick

Emily Melnick grew up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pa.  Her passion for baking stems from her grandmother.  Emily would bake alongside her grandmother as she prepared cookies for weddings and holidays.  After high school, Emily attended The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, where she earned a degree in Pastry Arts and Restaurant Management.  

Emily has traveled and baked extensively throughout Italy.  She is inspired by the Italian culture and the simplicity of beautiful ingredients.    

Emily is a wife and mother of two beautiful daughters.  Baking is a time that her and her family spend together talking, laughing and making memories. 

Emma Hartman

Emma is a self-taught baker and has been baking for almost 15 years, after first using it as a tool for therapy, it grew into a hobby and now she can finally say she is a professional baker! Growing up in the UK has a huge impact on Emma’s baking style here in America. She is Mommy to Penny and wife to Matthew, both of which hold the esteemed title of Butter Bakery Taste Tester. It’s her dream to one day be a contestant on Great British Bake Off and receive the coveted “Hollywood Handshake”.
